    Need to know if pepper-spray is legal in D.C.

    So I'm reasonably sure that a group of friends and I are going to D.C. over the holiday break. As I know D.C. has got some of the most draconian gun and knife laws in the nation, carrying either there would be pure suicide. But I can't see just going without nothing.

    I've decided to arm myself with a good stout metal pen, a keychain sized unit of pepper spray, and a Surefire. My question is: can I carry the pepper-spray unit in D.C.

    I'll be hitting the Mall, the Smithsonian, and some other places.

    If you know, I need your help.

    Thanks.

    I seem to recall reading that pepper spray in DC is allowed if it's in a clearly labeled container. I may have read that on packing.org before that site disappeared. I don't know about specific locations like the Smithsonian. I suppose you'd be able to get a container of pepper spray through a metal detector, but I've never tried.
